I didn't see too many memorable encores from 1990-1995, but here are my favorites:

6/19/91 - The only Quinn the Eskimo I ever saw. A nice way to end a sort of uneven show.

6/9/92 - Brokedown left a sweet song in my head after a pretty mediocre show that paled in comparison to the previous night. Jerry digs in on the vocals.

7/1/92 - Say what you want, but Baba> Tomorrow was actually pretty cool. Vince sounds hilarious, yes, but I give them points for a) trying something new, and b) linking a Who song to a Beatles song. All smiles leaving that show.

7/9/95 - Double encore of Black Muddy, Box of Rain redeemed (somewhat) an otherwise miserable show.
